Search help

  • Simple searches use one or more words. Separate the words with spaces (cat dog) to search cat,dog or both. Separate the words with plus signs (cat +dog) to search for items that may contain cat but must contain dog.
  • You can further refine your search on the search results page, where you can search by keywords, author, topic. These can be combined with each other. Examples
    • cat dog --matches anything with cat,dog or both
    • cat +dog --searches for cat +dog where dog is a mandatory term
    • cat -dog -- searches for cat excluding any result containing dog
    • [cats] —will restrict your search to results with topic named "cats"
    • [cats] [dogs] —will restrict your search to results with both topics, "cats", and "dogs"

Bug with GameplayTask activation

When using "Wait Input Press" it adds the task to the ActiveTasks list defined in UGameplayAbility. but when using "Wait Target Data" it is NOT added to the ActiveTasks list.

This means I cannot use TaskName as a tool to confirm or endtask manually. My test case looks like this:

It seems like if the ability task has defined a function called "BeginSpawningActor" it will instead call that function and not Activate, which will make it so that the task never does PeformActivation, thereby never being entered into the ActiveTasks list. This is a bug, since you definitely want to be able to use the BeginSpawningActor functionality whilst also having the task in the ActiveTasks list.
